In The Region:

Cleveland and Dallas are the finalists to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. The RNC announced the decision this afternoon. Denver and Kansas City were eliminated.

The eventual winner is expected to see about 50,000 visitors and reap millions of dollars. Cleveland Host Committee Chairman Terry Egger credits the public-private partnerships and bi-partisan efforts for Cleveland getting to this point.

The RNC has made two exploratory visits Cleveland, and Egger says the inspections are not over yet.

“There will be a small tech team visiting our city again next week, we look forward to that. We think there that it’s just a matter of them having questions about the two fine cities that are the finalists and us going back and forth in terms of being able to accommodate.”

The RNC is expected to announce its decision in August.

Cleveland also found out today it’s among six cities the Democrats are considering for their 2016 convention. So is Columbus.

If Cleveland gets the Republican convention, it will drop out of the DNC competition.
